Today we are featuring Pandora and Mackenna from Ripped by Katy Evans! Ripped is the fifth novel in the Real series and was released on December 9, 2014 from Gallery Books!

*Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*

______________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Pandora we are going to start with you so Mackenna could you please leave the room?  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your answers to match Mackenna’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

It is very important to learn all the little things about the person you are dating so I want to know what is Mackenna’s all time favorite song? What is your all time favorite song so we can see if he knows what it is?

Pandora: HIS favorite song used to be Pandora’s Kiss (which he sings). Now our favorite song is Lullaby (which he also sings.) So yeah, Lullaby.

DFT: I know that you two have a lot of history between you so I’m sure there are lots of memories both good and bad.  Can you tell me what you think is the most romantic moment you have shared with Mackenna throughout your relationship?

Pandora: Gah I’m so sure I’ll regret saying it cause Kenna’s going to rib me for all eternity! But I really love when he’s up on stage, in concert, or at our bar, and he just looks at me with his wolfy eyes? It’s hot and romantic and everything I can think of.

DFT: I know it was years ago but I want you tell me what happened the first time you met Mackenna?

Pandora: I kind of wanted him to like me, but he was such a big shit to everyone and I tiny, itsy bitsy little shit, I didn’t let myself hope, really.

DFT: From the sounds of it Mackenna seems like he is quite the bad boy and I imagine that he has a dirty mouth at times. What is the naughty word he uses most to tease you?

Pandora: Mackenna’s bad. Yep. Someone has to wash his mouth with soap (not me though, I like his filthy mouth!)

DFT: What is the one thing you like most that Mackenna does during sex? What it the one thing he likes most that you do during sex?

Pandora: I love it when he talks dirty and I’m pretty sure he loves talking dirty to me until I blush, the bastard.

DFT: If you were to give Mackenna free rein in the bedroom to do whatever he wanted what would he choose? What would you choose to do if you were given free rein?

Pandora: He has free reign already! Don’t give him more! He shaved my pussy once—top to bottom, side to side. I guess I could do that again. I’m pretty sure I’d enjoy him doing anything, really. So bring on the toys if that’s the case, just have Mackenna come attached to it. *laughing*

Ripped

DFT: Ok Mackenna it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Pandora.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

It is very important to learn all the little things about the person you are dating so I want to know what is your all time favorite song? Also what do you think is Pandora’s all time favorite song?

Mackenna: Hey girls, thanks for having me over. I hope Pink behaved herself, she’s sometimes not too happy about being asked a lot of questions. Closes up and stuff. *grins* Favorite song? Lullaby.

Pink’s? Definitely Lullaby.

DFT: I know that you two have a lot of history between you so I’m sure there are lots of memories both good and bad.  Can you tell me what you think is the most romantic moment you have shared with Pandora throughout your relationship?

Mackenna: My girl coming up on stage during my band’s concert in Madison Square Garden? Dancing that sexy little ass off for me? Nothing tops that. And I mean it, girls. NOTHING. Should’ve seen the way she rocked it. *grins*

DFT: I know it was years ago but I want you tell me what happened the first time you met Pandora?

Mackenna: She was about to get in a catfight with some group of girls who had issues with Pink’s dress choice. I took it up as my mission to add a little color to her life.

DFT: From the sounds of it you have quite the bad boy reputation and I imagine that you have a dirty mouth at times. What is the naughty word you use most to tease Pandora?

Mackenna: I just like to say what’s on my mind, especially if it makes her respond.

DFT: What is the one thing you like most that Pandora does during sex? What it the one thing she likes most that you do during sex?

Mackenna: I like it when my baby goes down on me, of course.

And she definitely likes the 69 too.

DFT: If you were given free rein in the bedroom to do whatever you wanted what would you choose? What would Pandora choose to do if she were given free rein?

Mackenna: We have free reign and whatever it is she answered, it’s done, Pink. I’m on it. Tonight’s the night I’m making your dreams come true.

DFT: Alright Pandora how do you think Mackenna did? Were his answers pretty accurate?

Pandora: God, Mackenna. Really. *rolling her eyes, laughing*

DFT: Mackenna what did you think of Pandora’s answers?

Mackenna: Yeah, that’s my girl. *he grins proudly smacking her ass*

About this Book:

The fifth book in the New York Times new adult series that began with Real. When an angry, heartbroken girl is forced to be near her rocker ex-boyfriend, only time will tell if the fire between them will consume them both.

Pandora, the gothic friend of Brooke (Real, Mine, Remy) and Melanie, thought that getting her heart broken by her bad boy rocker ex could only happen once. But now, he’s back in town with the biggest concert of the year. Pandora hates him so much that she gets Melanie to come with her and play a prank on him at his gig. But when they are caught by security, and her ex himself is summoned, he decides not to press charges if she’ll follow certain conditions. Pandora likes none of his rules, or that he’s in charge of her, especially since they seem designed to make sure she’s in close contact with him again. But the closeness reignites the passion they once shared, and soon no matter how much she wants to hate him, it’s clear she’s still hung up on him. And worse: he knows it too.

Dating Games: Becoming Rain by K.A. Tucker

February 14th, 2015 Kristie Posted in Dating Games 6 Comments »

Dating #5

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Luke and Rain from Becoming Rain by K.A. Tucker! Becoming Rain is the second novel in the Burying Water series. This novel will be released on March 3, 2015 from Atria Books!

*Enter for a chance to win a copy of Becoming Rain at the end of this post! Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*

______________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Luke we are going to start with you so Rain could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Rain’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

All couples should know what their partners favorite meal is, so they can make it when they are in trouble :D ! Luke can you tell me what Rain’s ideal meal would be? Also what is your favorite meal so we can see if Rain knows what it is?

Luke: “Uh… Anything Italian. Yeah, Definitely. But it has to be made by an Italian. Don’t get her started on the food carts downtown… Me? That’s a no-brainer. Chef Boyardee.”

DFT: We know you are in the business of fixing cars and see many different cars on a regular basis. So I was wondering if Rain was a car which one would she be and why?

Luke: “I have a feeling she’d going to hate me calling her a car. But, if I have to for the sake of this game, I’d say a Bentley. A new one. Smooth and sleek, and yet classy. A timeless beauty.”

DFT: What is the one thing Rain does that always gets you in the mood? Also what’s the one thing you do that instantly turns her on?

Luke: “She shows up? Seriously, I just have to see Rain and I’m in the mood, But part of that could be the issue with… you know. Her? I wish I knew because I’d be doing it all the time. She’s hard to read though. A bit hot and cold, sometimes. Though, again, it’s part of her past. I can respect that.”

DFT: What do you think Rain’s opinion was of you the first time you met?

Luke: “She was into me right away. I could see it in those light blue eyes, the second she peeled her sunglasses off. She made it pretty obvious, too. ”

DFT: How do you think you can make your sexual life more successful/fun or do you think it’s perfect the way it is?

Luke: “By actually having sex? No, don’t tell her I said that. My official answer is, ‘it’s perfect’.”

DFT: Where do you see Rain and you in 10 years from now?

Luke: “I don’t even know where I see myself in 10 months, let alone 10 years. Things are a bit complicated right now… All I know is that I want her there. Even if it’s still living across from me.”

Burying WaterBecoming Rain

DFT: Ok Rain it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Luke.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

All couples should know what their partners favorite meal is, so they can make it when they are in trouble :D ! What is your ideal meal?  Also what is the meal you would make for Luke if you were in trouble?

Rain: “That’s easy. A plate of meats and cheeses and a bottle of Chianti. And I’m guessing Luke didn’t get that right. What would I make Luke? Well, seeing as he lives off of Chef Boyardee when he’s left to his own devices, I’d make him a lasagna or meat ball sandwich. Something Italian, and not made by a random guy in a shed downtown.”

DFT: We know that Luke is in the business of fixing cars and see many different cars on a regular basis. So we are wondering if you were a car which one would you be and why?

Rain: “What would Rain be… let’s see. Something sleek and high-end, but not pretentious. An Audi RS 5, which is exactly why I picked it.”

DFT: What is the one thing you do that always gets Luke in the mood? Also what’s the one thing Luke does that instantly turns you on?

Rain: “It took me a while to figure out the answer to that. All I can say is that I lured him in with my wit, and now all I have to do is walk into a room. Or not. A lot can be done with a window. He’s a very visual guy. All Luke seems to have to do lately is smile, and I forget who I am. It’s going to be my undoing one of these days.”

DFT: What was your impression of Luke the first time you met him?

Rain: “Cocky, self-assured… Trouble. But I wanted to catch his eye.”

DFT: How do you think you can make your sexual life more successful/fun or do you think it’s perfect the way it is?

Rain: “It’s perfect just the way it is… for now. There’s no need to rush.”

DFT: Where do you see Luke and you in 10 years from now?

Rain: “Happy… and safe, with no regrets. I hope for that every day.”

DFT: Luke you now get to tell us what you thought of Rain’s answers!

Luke: “Sorry… too busy smiling for her.”

DFT: Rain how do you think Luke did? Were his answers accurate?

Rain: “About as accurate as I’d expect of a twenty-four-year-old guy who lives for reality television.”

Available March 3, 2015 from Atria Books

About this Book:

Luke Boone doesn’t know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in but he wants in on it-the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he’s finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set-one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it’s not exactly legal, Luke’s never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain.

Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game-at only twenty-six years old, she’s one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington D.C. major crime unit, and she’s just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the west coast’s most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she’ll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle’s footsteps.

As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she’ll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she’ll even want to.

Dark Faerie Tales: Seth we are going to start with you so Josie could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible.

For our first question I want to know what Josie’s favorite candy is? Also what is your favorite candy as well so we can see if Josie guesses it right?  

Seth: Josie’s favorite candy is chocolate.  My favorite candy has to be those Valentine’s Day Sweethearts.

DFT: Tell us word for word what happened the first time you met Josie?

Seth: She was crazy about me.  I’m surprised she could even keep her hands off of all of this sexiness.

DFT: Since we know you are quite the bad boy and I imagine you can have quite a dirty mouth at times. What is the naughty word you use most to tease Josie?  

Seth: Moist.  She thinks it’s gross when I use that word.

DFT: What is your number sexual fantasy you would like to try with Josie?  

Seth: There are too many to prioritize.

DFT: Out of all of Josie’s amazing qualities both physical and non-physical what is your favorite thing about her? Also what do you think is her favorite thing about you? 

Seth: I like how Josie continues to surprise me.  She’s also really hot.  I doubt she can chose her favorite thing about me, but it’s my charm.  Or how sexy I am.  The list is way too long.

The Return

DFT: Ok Josie it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Seth.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers! 

For our first question I want to know what is your favorite candy?  Also what is Seth’s favorite candy?  

Josie: Mine is chocolate.  Seth’s is Sour Patch Kids because he’s kinda sweet and sour at the same time.

DFT: Tell us word for word what happened the first time you met Seth?  

Josie: He’s gonna say that I was totally into him, so I  don’t think it even matters what really happened. He’ll say that I’m telling the story all wrong.

Josie: Moist.  It’s gross.

Josie: I’m not answering that question.  (blushes)

Josie: There’s so much more to Seth than he lets anyone see.  But I love knowing that he lets me see another side of himself.  His favorite thing about me?  I bet he said my ass or something equally as shallow.

DFT: Ok Seth you now have a chance to comment on Josie’s answers and what you think of them!  

Seth: I love how she acts like she’s not that into me when I know she can barely control herself around me. It’s hot.

DFT: Now it’s your turn Josie, do you think Seth’s answers were correct?  

Josie: No way.

About this Book:

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series.

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Joss and Matt from When Joss Met Matt by Ellie Cahill (Liz Czukas)! When Joss Met Matt will be released on February 24, 2015 from Ballantine Books!

*Enter for a chance to win a copy of When Joss Met Matt at the end of this post! Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*

______________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Matt we are going to start with you so Joss do you mind leaving the room for a minute.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Joss’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

So obliviously you and Joss started out as good friends so you should know a lot about each other and I am expecting you guys to do really well on this quiz (no pressure or anything :D ). For my first question I want to know what Joss’s all time favorite movie is? Also what is your favorite movie to see if she knows it?

Matt: Joss’s all time favorite movie…she’ll tell you it’s Roman Holiday, but it’s actually Bring It On. Mine is definitely The Shawshank Redemption.

DFT: We know that you two have a great friends with benefit relationship going on so I was wondering what do you usually talk about after sex?

Matt: Her hair. Because it drives me crazy when it’s in my face. <laughs>

DFT: Who was Joss’s closet childhood friend growing up and are they still friends?

Matt: Monica something. I never met her. I think they might be Facebook friends now.

DFT: What one item of clothing do you wear that Joss can’t stand?

Matt: <grins> My red Badgers hat.

DFT: Ok these next few questions are going to be fun sexy times questions so make sure to not skimp on any details :D ! On which part of Joss’s body does she most like to be kissed? Also what’s your favorite body part you like Joss to kiss?

Matt: She likes to be kissed right between her shoulder blades along her spine. It makes her make this sound I really really like.

And for me…honestly? It’s boring, but I just like to be kissed on the lips.

DFT: Where is your favorite place to have sex and what position do you like most?

Matt: Is anywhere an answer? ‘Cause I’m not real picky about where. Everywhere is good. And I guess my favorite position depends on where we are. Whatever works, you know?

Untitled-2

DFT: Ok Joss it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Matt.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

So obliviously you and Matt started out as good friends so you should know a lot about each other and I am expecting you guys to do really well on this quiz (no pressure or anything :D ). For my first question I want to know what your all time favorite movie is? Also what is Matt’s favorite movie?

Joss: Roman Holiday. It’s so romantic and classy. Matt’s favorite is The Shawshank Redemption, every time it’s on TV he puts it on even though we’ve already seen it like a thousand times.

DFT: We know that you and Matt have a great friends with benefit relationship going on so I was wondering what do you usually talk about after sex?

Joss: Um…anything, really. I mean, he always asks if I’m okay—always. And then he tells me to get my hair out of his face. <laughs> But then we just talk about whatever’s on our minds. Or fall asleep.

DFT: Who was your closet childhood friend growing up and are you still friends?

Joss: Monica Finch. We’re Facebook friends, but she lives in St. Louis now.

DFT: What one item of clothing does Matt wear that you can’t stand?

Joss: Oh god, that horrible hat of his. One of these days, I’m going to accidentally throw it out of a moving car or something.

DFT: Ok these next few questions are going to be fun sexy times questions so make sure to not skimp on any details :D ! On which part of your body do you like Matt to kiss most? And which body part does Matt like you to kiss most?

Joss: I can only pick one? Mmm, that’s hard. He’s kind of awesome with kissing. Wait, forget I said that, he’ll be gloating all day. Um, my neck? Sure, that.  And what does he like…hmm…you know that’s a good question. I think I’d have to say his lips. Can that be my answer?

DFT: Where is your favorite place to have sex and what position do you like most?

Joss: Not the kitchen floor! <laughs> I guess I’m boring. I like a nice soft bed. And as for position, I’d say I like being on top. Matt’s up for anything as long as my hair isn’t tickling his nose.

DFT: Alright Matt how do you think Joss did? Were her answers pretty accurate?

Matt: You totally lied about the movie. You know it’s Bring It On.

Joss: I woudn’t say it’s my favorite. Roman Holiday is a much classier movie. I mean, Audrey Hepburn, for heaven’s sake.

Matt: Such a liar. If both movies were playing at the same time, which one would you want to watch?

Joss: It would depend on my mood.

Matt: <gives her a look>

Joss: Okay, shut up. What about the rest of my answers, smart guy?

Matt: You got my favorite movie right anyway. And the stuff about your hair.

Joss: I cannot be held responsible for my hair. These curls have a mind of their own.

Matt: I love your curls. Just not up my nose. But you’re wrong about your favorite body part.

Joss: Oh really? You think you know better?

Matt: I know I do, you’ll see. But you are right about my awesomeness.

Joss: I knew I shouldn’t have said that.

Matt: No harm in telling the truth. Speaking of which, we rocked that kitchen floor.

Joss: You weren’t the one on your knees.

Matt: I got you hotpads to put under them, didn’t I?

Joss: <grins> My knight in shining armor.

DFT: Joss what do you think of Matt’s answers?

Joss: I’m glad to hear he recognizes the heinousness of the Badgers hat, anyway.

Matt: I only acknowledge that you hate it, not that there is anything wrong with the hat itself.

Joss: That hat better watch its back, that’s all I’m saying.

Matt: You wouldn’t dare.

Joss: <laughs evilly>

Matt: Uh huh. Very scary. Do you at least admit I’m right about your favorite body part?

Joss: What did you say it was…? Oh. Yeah…that’s a very good spot. Mmm.

Matt: See?

Joss: Fine, you got that one right.

Matt: Told you.

Joss: But I’m very disappointed in us about the rest. Neither of us has a favorite place or position? Really? That seems sad.

Matt: It’s not sad. It just means we’re that good together. Location is a mere detail.

Joss: Okay, then we clearly have to work on the position thing.

Matt: I’m listening…

Joss: We’ll just have to try them all. For science.

Matt: God, I love the way you think.

Liz CzukasAbout Liz:

Liz Czukas is a freelance writer (on sometimes sad or boring topics), and also writes books for young adults (which are rarely sad and full of kissing). Before that, she was a nurse and she still kind of misses starting IVs.

She lives outside Milwaukee, WI with her husband, son and the world’s loudest cat. She types too loud (according to her husband), spends too much time on the Internet, and can’t get enough of disaster movies. There is *always* a song stuck in her head, and she once won a hula-hoop contest.

If you are interested in honing your stalking skills (from a distance, please) Liz welcomes you to practice on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or better yet, Twitter where she likes to hang out and talk about TV, writing, Harrison Ford, her kid, and all of the idiotic things she does to injure herself on a routine basis.

Liz is also the real person behind the New Adult novelist Ellie Cahill, who also writes books full of kissing (and more!). Ellie has remarkably similar interests to Liz.

About this Book:

Ellie Cahill is poised to coin the term “sorbet sex” with her charming twist on the age-old ‘friends-with-benefits’ story.

Dating can be fun, but it can leave a nasty taste in your mouth. For Joss, ever since her longtime boyfriend cheated on her, she doesn’t want her last memory of a guy to be that jerk. Enter her college friend, Matt. They come up with a theory: after a bad break-up, a person needs to cleanse the palate with a little sorbet sex. Lovers for a night, but always back to being friends in the morning. The two can handle it because they have a contract: rules they wrote, rules they follow and rules they can sometimes bend. The arrangement works: everyone needs a little sorbet now and again … until it starts to be the only thing you want. And then Joss breaks the one rule they never wrote down: don’t fall in love.

______________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Theo we are going to start with you so Cait do you mind leaving the room for a minute. 

*Cait glances at Theo with a challenging smirk before walking off.*

DFT: I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Cait’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

*Theo nods, sitting straighter in his chair, gazing intently with his mesmerizing green eyes as he listens.*

DFT: I know that you had a pretty instant connection with Cait but I am wondering how well you actually know her.  Can you tell me what Cait’s favorite sweet is? Also what is your favorite sweet so we can see if Cait knows what it is?

Theo: Sweets? Cait does not favor sweets unless you consider sweet wines to be such. As for me, dragons are carnivores and do not each human foods since we prefer a fresh kill. *He breaks into a smile, revealing perfect white teeth, devastatingly sexy yet thrillingly dangerous.*

DFT: You are a dragon which makes you immortal so I know that you have experiences a lot in life and been with many different people. What is the one thing about Cait that makes her different from all the rest?

Theo: I am eternal, not immortal. There is a difference. Vampires are immortal. *His face is expressionless and tone rather offended but quickly moves on to answer the question in a more congenial way.* There are many things that make Cait different from ‘all the rest’ as you say. She is not as she appears on the surface. However, the way Cait stands up to me as my equal without hesitation or fear of consequence, knowing exactly who and what I am, is unparalleled. *Theo grins, eyes glittering in the light.* Cait is feisty.

DFT: I always love couples that strengthen and make each other better. What do you think is the best quality Cait brings out in you? What is the best thing you bring out in her?

Theo: *He takes a deep breath, appearing thoughtful before leaning slightly forward as he answers.* Through Cait, I have learned what I do purely out of love can be just as honorable and noble as those deeds born of a sense of duty and justice. Love is not a weakness. And Cait? *He pauses and shakes his head, laughing quietly.* Despite her vast self-confidence, I believe I have helped guide her to see the great leader and inspiration that is within her.

DFT: What was it like to kiss Cait for the very first time?

Theo: *Theo leans back again, a fiery heat in his eyes.* Intense. To say more regarding our personal affairs would be quite disrespectful.

DFT: If you could have Cait dress is anything you want, and I do mean ANYTHING, what would you choose and why?

Theo: *His jaw sets sternly, clearly not amused by the intent of this question.* I would have her dress as she likes when dancing. When Cait dances, she appears free of all earthly boundaries and expresses herself without reserve. She is both at her strongest and her most vulnerable. There is nothing more beautiful to witness.

DFT: If you were to give Cait free rein in the bedroom to do whatever she wanted what would she choose? What would you choose to do if you were given free rein?

Theo: *Theo’s glare is dark and immensely intimidating, yet there’s still something oh so sexy about his piercing green eyes, despite the lurking danger.* I will politely act as those you did not dare ask such impertinent questions of me and warn you to take this line of questioning no further. You clearly know not the honor of dragons to do so.

Fire of Stars and Dragons 400x600- FINAL Cover

DFT: Ok Cait it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Theo .  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

Cait: *Cait grins and laughs easily.* Sounds great!

DFT: I know that you had a pretty instant connection with Theo but I am wondering how well you actually know each other.  Can you tell me what your favorite sweet is? What do you think is Theo’s favorite sweet?

Cait: *She laughs pretty hard, covering her mouth and taking a moment to compose herself before replying.* Well, unless dessert wines count, I don’t really have one, and I’m going out on a limb to say he probably gave some relatively gross answer about what dragons eat.

DFT: Theo is a dragon which makes him immortal so I know that he has experienced a lot in life and been with many different people. What do you think is the one thing about you that makes you different from all the rest?

Cait: *She raises her eyebrows and shakes her head.* You didn’t actually call him immortal did you? Damn. That… wow. Okay. Well, I don’t know. I think he finds it oddly charming that I get up in his face and tell him off if I don’t agree with him.

DFT: I always love couples that strengthen and make each other better. What do you think is the best quality Theo brings out in you? What is the best thing you bring out in him?

Cait: *Cait appears a bit perplexed and takes a few minutes to answer.* That’s a good question. I mean, he certainly manages to piss me off a lot, mostly on purpose, I think. But I’d say he’s opened me up to the idea I’m more than what I thought I was, though I’m still struggling with the whole idea. What I’ve brought out in him is pretty easy: love. He was completely hardheaded on the subject beforehand. Well, love and frustration. I know I frustrate him to no end.

DFT: What was it like to kiss Theo for the very first time?

Cait: *She grins and winks.* Epic, mind-blowing, intense, indescribable. Oh, and HOT. Definitely HOT. I’m guessing he was pretty tight-lipped about it though. That’s a dragon thing, honor, respect for women, and all that.

DFT: If Theo could have you dress in anything he wanted, and I do mean ANYTHING, what would he choose and why?

Cait:*Cait giggles.* I have absolutely no idea how he would answer this except to say that I’m definitely sure he did NOT reply with anything in the realm of something sexually provocative as the question alludes to.

DFT: If you were to given free rein in the bedroom to do whatever you wanted what would you choose? What would Theo choose to do if he were given free rein?

Cait: Oh, dear Goddess. *Cait leans back, face in her hands, laughing hysterically.* No, you did not. *She has tears in her eyes from laughing so hard, and she’s breathless.* You seriously asked him that? And he didn’t just storm off furiously? *She chokes back more laughter.* Well, I KNOW he did NOT answer that at all. I’m sure it completely offended him, actually. *She calms down, wipes her face, and catches her breath.* Dragons have an honor code that’s difficult to understand and a deep respect for women that goes beyond medieval chivalry or anything. They aren’t human. They’re older than you can imagine. The way they value women isn’t ‘old-fashioned’ really, it’s on the level of reverential adoration. Do you get it?

DFT: Theo you now get to tell us what you thought of Cait’s answers!

Theo: *He’s still obviously rather furious from his early questioning and quite closed off.* She answered much as I expected. Cait has still not completely adapted to dragon eating habits and continues to make commentary regarding her distaste for anything any of us say on the subject.

And hardheaded? I do not think I am the only one who could be described as ‘hardheaded’ as she wishes to say, which could be why she believes I find myself frustrated so frequently.

As for the questions I found distasteful, Cait explained the reason for my offense quite clearly, and I have nothing more to say on the subject.

DFT: Cait how do you think Theo did? Were his answers accurate?

Cait:  *Cait’s eyes are on Theo rather than you, her expression soft.* Yeah. I think he did great. I like that he says I taught him love is not a weakness. And I didn’t know he felt that way about me dancing. That’s incredibly sweet, very romantic to know he thinks of me that way when I’m doing something that has always meant so much to me.

Theo: *Theo wraps an arm around her, pulling her closer, his voice low as he speaks to Cait.* Dancing is beautiful, as are you, but you dancing is so divinely beautiful, the stars in the night sky cannot compare.

Cait: *Grinning, Cait turns and gives you a wink.* See? Respectful, adoring, romantic… Every woman should be so lucky as to have a dragon boyfriend.

Fire of Stars and Dragons 400x600- FINAL Cover

Available April 29, 2014 from Swoon Romance

About this Book:

A dragon’s fire cannot be tamed.

In 22nd century sovereign America, women should be seen and not heard. Unfortunately, twenty-one-year-old CAITRIONA HAYDEN didn’t get that memo!

Determined to make her way in the world following the death of her uncle, being “seen” is the least of Cait’s problems.

Someone’s trying to kill her.

Ordained to guard and protect her, when Theo Pendragon claims Cait as his ward, he finds more than he expects as the flames of passion ignite within the dragon for the first time. But Theo is not alone in his desire, and he must learn to fight for what he wants, even if it costs him his best friend.

Dante, a powerful demigod and beloved friend to Theo, has spent centuries pursuing intellectual endeavors rather than indulging in the heat of desire. But everything changes when Cait arouses an attraction he cannot deny.

But Dante isn’t the only one with a vested interest in Cait’s future.

America’s monarch, an ancient vampire named Corrin, puts no stock in the frivolity of love, and yet a proper queen would boost his approval rating amongst the people. Marrying Cait could hold the key to his survival.

Now, love, desire and need force Cait into an impossible situation with dire consequences.

Soon, Cait goes from studying for college exams to fighting for a future she never knew she wanted with a man she never imagined she could love. But the key to her future is held in the one secret she has yet to uncover.
